October 10th will actually be a "double header" of school board candidate forums. The five candidates for the three open seats on the Mountain View Whisman School District Board of Trustee will speak and answer audience questions at the League of Women Voters candidate forum from 6:15 - 7:30 PM at Crittenden Middle School, 1701 Rock St, Mountain View.
We hope folks will also stick around for the candidate forum you list above for the Santa Clara County Board of Education Trustee Area #1 seat.
Thanks for listing these.
Ellen Wheeler, LWV education committee chairperson
